Ham and Spinach Quiche is a savory egg and cheese that can be served hot or cold, for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. 



  • 1 refrigerator pie crust – you can also use frozen or made-from-scratch pie crust
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half n half
  • 4 ounces diced ham
  • 23 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 11/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Place refrigerator pie crust into a pie pan/dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Bake for 6-8 minutes – remove from oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes. (Note: crust will not be fully cooked – it should only be parbaked.
  4. Place the diced ham in a stove top pan and cook on medium-high for 5 minutes to remove the water from the ham.
  5. When the ham appears to have no more water, add the spinach, one handful at a time.
  6. Cook spinach for 1-2 minutes – it should wilt quickly.
  7. Remove the ham and spinach from the burner and set aside to cool.
  8. While pie crust and ham/spinach are cooling, beat the eggs and half n half.
  9. Next, add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  10.  To assemble the quiche, spread the ham/spinach mixture on the bottom of the pie crust, add the cheese, and carefully pour in the egg mixture.
  11. Place the pie pan in the oven and cook for 10 minutes at 425°
  12. After 10 minutes, reduce the heat to 350° and back for another 30-35 minutes.
  13. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
